The launch of the Home of the Week series is a classic quintessential representation of Medford's rich residential history with a 90 year-old Grand Dame. This exceptional eleven room home is beautifully displayed on top of two separately deeded corner lots across from Hastings Heights Park. This prospective colonial is truly a rare and unique opportunity to reside in a vintage home that has been finely preserved and offers three gracious levels of living space filled with exquisite woodwork, gorgeous built-ins, detailed moldings, period details and a flexible and generous floor plan.
An elegant front foyer with a traditional wood staircase if a fitting introduction to this magnificent home. Just off the entry is an elegant dining area with paneled wainscoting and a window seat and a stylish living room dressed with a charming built-in china cabinet and oversized fireplace. Two sets of French doors effortless guide guests to a lovely sunroom with three walls of windows for a panoramic view of the scenic landscape. The spacious kitchen offers a tremendous amount of cabinet and counter space, including a large butler's pantry and a cozy dining nook, provides the perfect setting for morning coffee and delightful family dinners.
The main and a butler's staircase both offer access to the second level which combines forces with the third floor to supply convenient flexible living accommodations of four to six liberally sized bedrooms and three full baths.
Residents will enjoy every moment of their time spent at 12 Laurel St., from its timeless features, graceful accommodations and even its spacious nearly one half acre mature grounds.
